Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969 ): 23.9 - 28.9, mean 27.5 °C (based on 1254 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805 ):  PD 50 = 0.5312   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01259 (0.00791 - 0.02004), b=3.14 (3.01 - 3.27), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for species & Subfamily-BS (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic level (Ref. 69278 ):  3.5   ±0.0 se; based on diet studies. Resilience (Ref. 120179 ):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.). Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) . Climate Vulnerability (Ref. 125649 ):   (0 of 100) . Nutrients (Ref. 124155 ):  Calcium = 132 [63, 236] mg/100g ; Iron = 1.01 [0.57, 2.02] mg/100g ; Protein = 17.9 [16.7, 19.1] % ; Omega3 = 0.297 [0.141, 0.646] g/100g ; Selenium = 26.4 [9.5, 65.7] μg/100g ; VitaminA = 72.4 [18.2, 268.7] μg/100g ; Zinc = 1.78 [1.11, 2.83] mg/100g (wet weight);
